live now from seoul is beyond a research fellow at the university's institute for north korean studies thanks for joining us on the program what's going to mean help to mystic is a second summit but in fact it needs to produce more concrete results than the first meeting last june or we have to wait and see if it is a good sign that our special envoy to north korea mr stephen began. to meet his counterpart here to get things going on the ground there i mean is there not only that there is no agreement for a second time meeting between top leaders but at working levels the details of the summit meetings will be compromised then discussed but more sides so one more concrete result we're coming out from the second summit meeting between. us present knowledge from of course of the word denuclearization is top of the agenda there's
a difference of opinion on what that word actually means for different countries it's a problem for japan compared to the u.s. so regional differences on that definition have to be considered when there is this conversation and you have kim jong un in the room who thinks of dick nuclearization in a very different context. you're absolutely correct there is a talk about united states willing to make a small deal that is are posed to. fully verify denuclearization of north korea. something meeting that means their north korea give up intercontinental ballistic missile or they can carry nuclear weapons to the united states in exchange for some benefits over it by the trumpet administration they may make the united states safe from nuclear weapon or tax from north korea but you will leave united states asian allies such as japan and south korea still within the range of
nuclear missile attacks from north korea so north korea may exploiting this divide between united states and the u.s. allies in asia and of course kim before this particular announcement was in china recently indicating that something was on the cards i mean china has its own reason to be interested in these talks but what is the relationship now between beijing and pyongyang when it comes to talks with d.c. because they themselves have never always been talking off the same page. well terence position is a very delicate it is a big sponsor for north korea at the same time china has been involved in very harsh trade war with the united states so to china does not want to be singled out by transport the administration or culpable for north korea not moving forward with its nuclear weapons or missiles so china may find it very difficult to.
get out of their existing coming sanctions but china wants to be a part of a range of them and there will gradually replaced the armistice agreement on one hundred fifty three if they're suspended the korean war with multi lateral you know peace the regime on the korean peninsula see what does this always good to get your insight thanks for joining us from seoul. on the al-jazeera news hour including the army's being mobilized in mexico to try and stop more disasters like this. i don't agree with many of the minister statement says. american accusations of anti semitism are out of step with women on the march. fourteenth many ways in for his latest. from him with only.
more protests in sudan the latest in a month of growing demands for the president to go or cry over the rising cost of bread has become the biggest challenge to the shiz thirty year rule people morgan reports from the capital call to one hundred brothers left home and ten days ago and never came back he joined anti-government protests in sudan second largest city and demand. we didn't realize he was shot while we were protesting security forces were coming at us and we ran for a bit and he said he couldn't feel he thought he twisted his arm then we learned he sustained a bullet wound we hid in a house and try to give him first aid that's when we noticed that he was also shot in the back when we were able to get to the hospital he was weak and lost away an hour later three protesters were killed that day human rights activists say at
least fifty have lost their lives in the month long protests demanding the resignation of president obama and bashir the government total is much lower protests started when the government announced a rise in the price of bread the outcry spread to other towns and cities nationwide and police have repeatedly fired bullets and tear gas to disperse crowds hospitals and doctors have been attacked by security forces for treating protesters. demands to end the shoes thirty year rule can be heard in every protest march. it's been one month since people started protesting to demand change people have been expressing their frustration at the way president armorel bashir has been running the country for the past thirty years despite the use of live ammunition and tear gas the protest seems to be gathering strength and for weeks on the president remains defiant. president bashir describes protested streeter's influence by foreign agents after criticism by the e.u. and the un of attacks on unarmed protesters sudan's government lawyer is promising
to investigate. we will be looking into the deaths that occurred during the protests and urged people who have information to come forward and presented to us so we can conclude what happened and how people have been killed we'll also look into those injured and those who had their property destroyed in the demonstrations but he remains wanted by the international criminal court for work rhymes and crimes against humanity in the western region of darfur some analysts say the biggest challenge he's yet faced at home has the potential to end his rule. this movement will be successful in changing the regime is true that the government doesn't see that but it can happen that can happen through a new political party taking over the ruling party sidestepping bashir and bringing someone else in his place but one thing we can be sure of is that saddam before the nineteenth of december is not the same saddam posed december when the protests started. bashir has promised economic reforms but as protests continue into
a second month some sudanese say they're ready to sacrifice their lives to see change changes which president bashir doesn't appear ready to many people morgan al-jazeera khartoum. is an activist and member of. a nonviolent resistance movement which is helping to organize the protests in sudan . in morocco via skype good to have you with us on the program how you how you able to organize and coordinate demonstrations against the authorities in car too. so basically if there's a whole coalition of people doing it there isn't one this isn't the centralized movement that's happening and there's always difficult and they're all uniting on one card which is like you need to go and a lot of the organization is happening a coalition through the professional sudanese association and there's calls for progress and when the call comes out he needs professional association is not the
one organizing on the ground. in decent allies who really. get people who work so people from different cities from different neighborhoods come together and the organizing small cell and everybody comes together because they know the call is coming so it's a different movement it's a people it is i mean the public and the authorities couldn't be further apart at this moment in time neither side is calling for some leader side is calling for talks so are you looking for someone to be a mediator is that the potential the next politician a leader within civil society someone who can be listened to by both sides have we come to that stage yet. i think will be unless they age a lot of people within the national congress party they're willing party are actually turning and thinking that they need change too so then we've been hearing more and more voices from within the party that think this is over we need to move on and we need to reach and really we need to have so those voices are coming out
so i think there is a main street in consciousness in the city and you say because for years we haven't been talking about it in the mainstream and now people are talking about it and i even have my own family groups whatsapp group and social media groups that aren't they used to always talk about and gilks and whatnot and now they're actually talking about this so there is this mainstream consciousness and people are talking about it and now with more margins with sit ins and all these calls for strikes there is more and more talk about people wanting change and imagining that ange so this is happening right now and i think it's been we've been strong and if it wasn't for the strong violence that people are faced with the borders would have been way way bigger and now they're still growing every single part of being for you so yourselves that there are members within the ruling party that are reevaluating their position we've seen coalition members of the government also
leads our coalition leaving president omar bashir very shaky ground if there is no one who makes that important step as you say within civil society or in the higher echelons of politics would you look to an outside source regional neighbors african union subject those organizations that can put pressure on the government in khartoum to talk to negotiate to bring somebody to a discussion table. so basically right now we do not need is cutting table we need our membership to step that nothing else is going to stop these protests which we need from the outside community international communities to quit unfettered for the violence to stop the violence can stop then we can move on the change is going to happen from the sudanese people and i think this time like now it's been a month off people discussing and reaching the conclusion of what we want and what do you want next is very important or right now the one call that everybody is saying is just left which is like then we just need to collapse or just see what
happens certainly in the coming days and weeks it's been very good to speak to her juge kook over in iraq thank you for joining us thank you you thank. colombia's president has asked cuba to hand over ten members of a leftist group accused of organizing a car bombing in bogota even decay has also been used to arrest orders for and leaders who were involved in stalled peace talks twenty one people were killed after a car packed with explosives blew up at a police academy on thursday the group has not claimed responsibility for the attack. as being mobilized to guard pipelines after an explosion killed and injured dozens of people at least twenty were burnt to death as they fill the containers with leaking fuel john holmes has more from mexico city. it looked like a village celebration dozens gathered under a fountain of gasoline it had erupted from what mexico's state oil company said was
an illegally tapped pipeline. they took their fill the soldiers sent to guard the pipeline looks on seemingly powerless then this happened. dozens of people were taken to hospital with burns many less food were burnt to death the tragedy comes just as the government is trying to crack down on oil was the point that their most important thing now is to look after the injured to save lives that is the most important thing the fight against the illegal theft of fuel will be strengthened. gangs and corrupt officials have been siphoning off petrol from the country's pipelines few years in two thousand and eighteen the army found more than six thousand illegal taps vulnerable pipelines have been shut down while this secured it's left many communities with shortages. the government's trying to make up those short pulls by delivering petrol in heavily guarded tankers in the capital the system is beginning to work but elsewhere emits crew second city
guadalajara and several states there are still queues the operation is costing serious money not just the tank. yes but the four thousand troops deployed to guard them pipelines and fuel posts experts say it can't go on indefinitely the president essentially made this a game of chicken let's see who gets tired first she said though stealing the country's oil for his government with its mounting costs the pipeline security and the fuel distribution. polls have shown the majority of mates can support the president stand. by that but if it's to fire people who are stealing the fuel it's good we just have to put up with it for a bit if it's to make the country better that's fine friday ended with another pipeline explosion in credit this time with no casualties but the clock is running for the president to come up with a long term solution to fuel theft and all that comes with it john home and now

of it is we have to do something legislatively to change this this sentence caps the trial of a half century in chicago where a police officer has not been convicted of murder on duty in more than fifty years then dykes wife pleaded for mercy i would like to ask the court to please take into consideration that my husband is a man he's a human being he's a very was a very good dedicated officer. priest. he has paid the price already my heart and soul are broken they will not be mended until he comes home prosecutors on the other hand had brought in a series of african-americans who said vandyke physically abused and harassed them he was. saudi obscenities it's racist slurs when have you caused

the march with political activism one of the things i found this really interesting is the degree to which people marched in the streets or what i call them as they resist in the streets last initially and then they started resisting in their congressional districts i found that people. who participated in the resistance were very involved in the midterm elections. attendance has fallen since the original women's march this year only ten to fifteen thousand people are expected to gather in washington the weather forecast of sleet and snow no doubt play a part in that but the annual event is now it seems a feature of the american political landscape rob reynolds al-jazeera washington. really forces have fired bullets and tear gas at palestinian protesters and ambulances on the gaza border at least thirty palestinians including three medics were injured it was the forty third consecutive friday protesters part of the great
